In 2021, the United States Mint struck new silver versions of both coins for the centenary, bearing the original design, and these will continue on an annual basis from 2023. However, the US Mint isn’t the only one marking the anniversary. Glines & Rhodes, a US dealer that traces its roots back to 1915, has issued a limited run of 1,921 new one-ounce silver coins. It takes elements from both the Morgan and Peace Dollars. The eagle side has the basic design of the Peace Dollar, but modified to have the outstretched wings and arrows in the claws of the earlier Morgan Dollar.
The reverse face is all new, and will be a little more controversial with traditionalists. It depicts Liberty in the two different forms, celebrating the centenary with a champagne toast. The background is classic Art Deco, as is the font used, and the clothing and drinks have been gilded. The heads of the two are instantly recognisable with the two 1921 coin effigies.
It’s a Smartminted coin issued for the Cook Islands, so clearly a BH Mayer strike, likely produced by CIT in Liechtenstein, so a peerless background that bodes very well for quality. It comes presented in one of those neat ‘floating latex’ frames and is available now for around $225 USD.
